Apps Laboratories was started in 2002 by Tim Apps as a soil and water testing lab. We found that many people wanted the same meters and test kits that we used in the lab so we extended into servicing that area. Hence the motto 'Testing solutions'. We place a lot of emphasis on resources that can help people choose appropriate test methods and understand the results.
Water testing has been on-going and we have moved into supply of household and light commercial water filters. Having the lab available helps to better understand water supply and treatment problems so we can help customers make more informed choices of filters and water treatments.
More recently we've literally gone back to our roots in soil testing. Nowadays we concentrate on adding value to test results by providing extended interpretations.
Tim's background is in science, biology and environmental sciences and education. He has practical interests and experience in horticulture, environment and farming.
Over the years we've seen a need to apply a good scientific approach to tacking farm problems in areas like soils and water management, plant production etc. Therefore we've become involved in some 'projects' where the emphasis is on working with farmers as collaborators in the problem solving process. Our soil and water testing underpins that work.
